ISKCON acquires Chippiwada Temple

Trustees of the Sri Radha Krishna Mandir in Chippiwada (New Delhi) have handed over management of the historic temple to ISKCON.
Srila Prabhupada once wrote in the temple’s guestbook:
“I am pleased to write herein that I have come to Delhi from my H.Q. 1/8/59, Keshi Ghat, Vrindaban (U.P.) purely on spiritual mission to propagate the cult of devotional service of the Lord. And I am more pleased to mention herewith that Sriman Sri Krishna Sharma, Haribhaktanudas, has provided me a suitable room for my literary activities.

“I am publishing an English fortnightly magazine of the name Back to Godhead from this place, and the Nawal Prem Shabha, of which Sri Krishnaji Sharma is the Honorary Secretary, is arranging for my daily lectures on Srimad Bhagwat. “Late Pandit Jyoti Prasad Sharma, father of Shri Krishnaji, was also known to me, and during his lifetime whenever I used to come to Delhi, Late Pandit Jyoti Prasadji would provide me with [a] residential place. His good son is also following in the footprints of his noble father, and as secretary of the Nawal Prem Shabha, he is doing good service in propagating Rama Nama all over the city.”
